The Kykurian Kyn (D.S. "Black Land of the Black and Red Cryers") lay east of Rhûn, above the western banks of the Talathrant. A vast grassland characterized by intermittent collections of rolling hills, it was populated by a host of ever-shifting Ulgathig- and Ioradja-speaking peoples. The former group, which dominated westernmost Kyn and eastern Rhûn, were known throughout Gondor as the "Wain-easterlings." The latter were often referred to as the "Balchoth."
